    Overpriced--a few pros, many cons

    This hotel was overpriced for what you get. The positives were that it is directly on the beach, has a nice outdoor pool, and the beds were comfortable. However, the hotel lobby decor was exceedingly tacky (pirate manequins, a treasure chest, and fake plastic plants hanging everywhere). The hotel was also in need of basic maintenance--there were water stains on the ceiling in the lobby, air vents were full of dust, rust on some structures. The hot tub was in the middle of the lobby and in plain view from the indoor restaurant and the indoor pool was the size of a bath tub. The balcony in our room overlooked a parking lot. The hotel is in need of a good remodel and there is a lot of construction going on. I just felt like we were paying for all these upgrades we weren't able to enjoy.

    perfect for families!!!

    We go to Destin every year and have done so for at least the past 5 years. This time, we decided to try somewhere new and stayed at this holiday inn. I cannot stop raving about it to family and friends, especially those with kids! First, its literally two steps off the beach--just walk through the sliding door and down the boardwalk and you're there. Second, for kids they have sooo many activities during the peak season. My girls got their faces painted and painted sand dollars. Third, each day 3-6, all you can eat popcorn and ice cream.... perfect for an afternoon snack after a day on the beach! For breakfast and dinner, if you eat at their restaurant, kids eat free with each adult meal. They also have the sandbar, which sells burgers, hot dogs, fries, frozen drinks, soda, beer, etc. AND you can order right on the deck and eat at a table with umbrella right off the beach! It was perfect because we never had to go back to the room for lunch, if we didn't want to take a break. We'd eat and walk right back down to the beach. The outdoor pool is huge, and there is a kiddie pool for toddlers. They also have an indoor pool and hot tub. Unlimited DVD rentals from their kiosks...which was perfect for the few rainy days we encountered and it has the latest movies! Our room was very clean and tidy, we were so close to all the best places to eat and attractions, and the staff was awesome! It was well worth the money and a great value!

    We would have liked the check-in time to be earlier than 4. We wanted to enjoy the beach a little bit before the sunset.
